Looking into the Future: Learning to Swim Prepares Kids for Military Careers

Thursday, September 20, 2018 | 10:10 pm

If your child has an interest in a military career, swimming can prepare them to achieve high honors.

Several high-ranking military officers have explained how recruits are generally able to pass every test with flying colors – except for swimming. There are several military swimming-related tests most military members must be able to pass. Recruits that are unable to pass swim qualifications are unlikely to make it far in the U.S. armed forces.

Learning to swim as a child is a lot easier than trying to pick up the skill as an adult. Children have less fear of water and are able to learn faster, perfecting their techniques over time.
